Re: MG ZS EV

Aside from the price ($47,000 on the road) one of the main reasons I went for the MG is that it uses liquid cooling for thermal management of the battery in our hot summer climate.
The next step up would be a Kona for about $65,000 or a Tesla M3 for near $80,000.

Re: MG ZS EV

When the car finally arrives I will test it out on the Tesla chargers up at Alkimos and post results in the forum.

MG ZS EV

Sometime in the next few months I should be getting a MG ZS EV. I know it has limited range and therefore I am wondering what I need if I decide to travel a bit around South West WA. The fast chargers in this area are somewhat unreliable. Does anyone have any advice on any extra cables I might need?...

Re: Extension cords

I was just looking at an extension cord for occasional use. For example if I was at a caravan park (in a cabin) or at a friend's place.
On the subject of caravan parks, is it OK to plug a 10a EVSE into a 15a caravan plug?

Re: Extension cords

Do you think this would do the trick for a granny charger?

Re: Vehicle servicing by dealer, or find another option?

Hi Brendan,
I spoke to Joondalup Autospark but they only seemed to be interested if it concerned an electrical problem, rather than regular vehicle servicing. It's a pity because they are good guys up there.

Hi Matthew, thanks for the reply. I might see if Autospark in Joondalup could do vehicle servicing.

Vehicle servicing by dealer, or find another option?

Hi to everyone, I'm in Perth and have a MG ZS EV on order arriving some time in the next few months. The question is do I get it serviced by the dealer or do I go looking for an alternative as I live in Joondalup about 35km. North of the dealer?
